Coupe Bodywork

Postby croker » Tue Sep 30, 2014 12:03 am

Has anyone used a Spit/rotisserie roll over jig on the body of a coupe for a restoration job? If so, do you have the dimensions and specifications so I can fabricate one? Similar idea to this...

I had my coupe soda blasted to remove all the paint, including the underside. They had a 'general purpose' adjustable rotisserie that was simply bolted to the underside, with a large wheel at the end. A simple friction bolt held the rotation in place.

That said, I'm not sure why you would want to build a rotisserie.... Once all the paint is off, there's very little work that is done on the underside ( the paint shop just used a lift) and I've done all the assembly with the car on jack stands.... although a lift in the garage would have been nice at times......
